DOVER, Del. (AP) — The end of federal tenant protections on Saturday has raised concerns that tens of thousands people around the country will be unable to afford rent and face eviction.

In Delaware, only a handful of tenants have sought protection under the federal moratorium. Thousands of Delaware households have received federally funded rental assistance over the past year, as well as protection from eviction under Gov. John Carney’s state of emergency, which he lifted July 13.

In all, Delaware has received at least $253 million for rental assistance from various federal funds.

Of that, it has distributed just $31 million so far.
